Sargon, King of Sumer
fromStory of the World by Susan Wise Bauer
A narration by Sarah Ward (age 9) Feb. 10, 2004

In Sumer, a man named Sargon was raised by a servant of the King of Kish. He became the cup bearer, and his job was to give wine to the king, at supper, in a silver cup. Only the most loyal servants could do this, because some may try to poison the king. Even though the king had been so good to him, Sargon wanted to be the ruler, so he convinced part of the king’s army to slaughter him. After doing this, Sargon battled for the cities of Sumer and won them. To make sure that no one was disloyal to him, he kept guards in all the cities.
